Was it a Bigfoot?

Reena in Ontario, Canada called in to tell of her Bigfoot encounter in northern Ontario.

“I was taking a course in the '90s in northern Ontario towards the Quebec border. I never really told anyone this but we had to do this 7 kilometre cross country track to get to the camp. So I was looking for my ski poles. You know, there were about 30 of us. Well, someone had mine so everyone had gone. Those people that had my poles, they went ahead of me and then they realized they had mine. To make a long story short, I went up this trail on my own. I was... I don't know how far I was from the camp but I saw this tall figure... I thought it was a figure. And it was as tall as a tree and it looked like a bear but I mean a bear, I don't know if it's that tall. Anyway, I was scared. But I had to keep going. There was no one there, I had to get to the camp. So when I got to that area where I saw this whatever it was, I had this horrible horrible feeling like, I don't even know how to describe it but it was like queasy, scary. So finally I get to the camp. I didn't see anything and I never told anyone.

So now a week later, we go back and I'm walking with a couple of people and around the area, like we had passed it, I looked back and I saw it again. So I said to the person next to me, look back and see if you see anything and they saw the same thing I did. (George Noory asked if it moved) It just kind of stood there like it was looking at us but it was just this creepy feeling that I had, like you know when your hair is standing up and... Like... Like... I don't know how to describe it. You know when you're scared and you know there's something around you that... a place you shouldn't be? It was like that feeling but it was just in that area where I saw it.

I've done some research, trying to see if there was anything such as Bigfoot down in that area but... I don't know what it was. I thought maybe it's just me. You know how sometimes when you're out in the country or something and you see what looks like water on the road but when you get there it isn't? I thought maybe that's what it is but when this person saw the same thing I did on the way back, I knew it had to be something. (Noory asks her if maybe it was a tree) I don't think it was. I don't think it was the trees. I don't think it was the trees. It was something in the middle of that trail. It wasn't... There was bush on each side but it was in the middle of the trail. It wasn't by the trees.”
